Yes, I think it's up to the font how <U+0061><U+2062><U+0062> is
That is, (someone correct me if I'm wrong) it is not the operating
system's concern if U+2062 is displayed as a glyph or not.
Therefore, U+2062 should only be shown as a very thin space if it
looks like a very thin space in the font!

Well, since an invisible times is not a joiner, a renderer should
not treat "ab" and "a times b" as equal. For instance, it can
display the a at the end of a line and the b at the beginning of the
next line, if need be.
